The harder I worked, the luckier I get” Gary Player
Saul was looking for his fathers lost sheep, he meet the prophet and he was selected to be the first king of Israel. He did not have successful career and he was not able to hand over the throne to his offspring. David was anointed or chosen to be king at age 17 but he did not ascend the throne until he was 30. He succeeded beyond measure. Joseph had a dream of greatness of ascending the throne at age 17. The dream became a reality at age 30. He ended up saving the world from famine.
Saul became a king immediately he was informed. He was not prepared for the role little wonder he was a disappointment. David had 13 years of preparation, likewise Joseph. I am too sure a great future awaits you but are you preparing. Enduring success is not a by product of luck or chance. It is product of investment. It starts with handling small projects and doing them well. It starts from serving from where you are. Are you a servant? Serve to the best of your ability. Are you a prisoner, serve well. Are you tending sheep then do it well. Whatever your hands finds to do, do it with all your might.
Please don’t despise the days of little beginning. Job said after my trial I will come forth as gold. Enjoy the days of training, the days of apprentice under a master, are u a join man serve with joy. Take every task with seriousness. Are u a student right now study diligently. Your present undertaken is preparing you for a prepared future. It’s important you put in your best into what you are doing now. Someone is watching you right now who can recommend you for a better job or opportunity. What impression are you creating at the moment? Are you sending the right signal? Don’t just excel with the task excel with a right attitude. Don’t complain, grumble or murmur. Enjoy your way up.
The pain of the moment will prevent a future pain. It’s a learning process. It’s making you a better person. It’s making you a tougher person. You can handle bigger responsible. Greater opportunities are coming your way because of what you have gone through. Believe me you will be grateful to God for the hardship you may be going through now. When you skip the process you will skip the result. Do you want a complete result? Complete your lessons. Greatness is not a product of half heartedness or mediocre efforts.
Beware of shortcuts. They only shortchange you. If the building will be tall, the foundations must be deep. The only thing you start from the top is a grave. Are you a career person, move up the ranks, learn, grow, and develop. Ensure you pay your dues. Earn your honor. At the end when you are at the top. You will be a grand master.
